    2018-2019 Europa League

    I think Lazaros, Torosidis, Koutris should've started. Tsimikas I love but defensively Koutris is more sound and the away goals are going to hurt Oly. WTF did they let fetfa go. They literally started him in the game where they beat Milan

    It's going to be cold as s%$#! in Kiev. Last time vs. AEK is was 1-1 and then 0-0 in Kiev. Let's hope Olympiakos will have better luck. Dynamo seems very good at holding a favourable result. Olympiakos showed great spirit vs. Milan though when they needed to win so let's hope the same can be done. Really looking forward to this one. The more dangerous attempts were from Olympiakos. Dynamo was lucky imo. Fortounis inches from making it 2-0. Podence dodging the goalie and again inches wide. Masouras also could've gotten a penalty on the last call where he was shoved down in the penalty box. I predict 0-0 in Kiev 40%, 1-1 30% or 1-0 Olympiakos Win 20%.

    Panagiotis Kone ‒ Western Melbourne FC

    he was very good in 2014. was our best player during world cup until he got injured

    If a player is good enough to start for Olympiakos, he's good enough for the NT imo.

    Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Masouras Kourbelis Gala Koutris Sok Man Bakakis Vlacho would probably be okay Chatzigiovannis impact sub. Lazaros is good though if he's in bad terms with coach could suck though but Lazaros is a quasi winger striker and we need people who can pop a goal up top. Masouras is a younger version though who can transcend Lazaros. I think Mas will be fine. He's proven himself in GSL

    chatzigiovannis and masouras look interesting options. youth is pretty big for wing positions. donis auto starter when healthy of course don't get why fetfa went to aris. he was playing well for oly. maybe he just likes to bide his energy during practice and turns off coaches or something

    Kostas Mitroglou ‒ Galatasaray SK

    Benfica was his sweet spot. Team/league. Turkish league is a bit more competitive then Greek league. So it's a good move. I predict he'll destroy the Turkish League.

    Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Lazaros/Fetfa Zeca Kourbelis Koutris Sokr Man Toro/Bakakis Vlacho the / I think is where the sub should be made. Lazaros is insane form still but gets gassed so then put in fetfa and bakakis to replenish the wings. Samaris and Galanopoulos also possibiliies at CM I like Tsimikas a lot too but Koutris is more stable defensively. Unless we played with 3atb with wingbacks then I'd want tsimikas because like to adventure deep into the attacking thirds and a really good crosser

    Kostas Mitroglou ‒ Galatasaray SK

    ^ couldn't have said it better myself. He was a monster at Olympiakos & Benfica. Everyone is second guessing him at Marseille (even worse at Fulham). You gotta have faith in your striker.

    Samaris is starting again for Benfica so that's a huge plus if he gets his form back. He can actually string a long pass.

    no it has more info then just that. look at pao's player wages and compare it to greek teams outside the big 4. big difference.

    they are still top 4 biggest spenders. look it up on transfermarkt https://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/super-league/startseite/wettbewerb/GR1

    I think we should play a CM and CDM. So a CDM to man mark like zeca take a modric/debruyne out of the game. Then we need a CM like Tachtsidis/Galanopoulos (makeshift ones in Pelkas/Mantalos) that can connect the midfield to attacking third. a big problem with us is the attacking third. panathinaikos's run has been cute but I think even without point reductions they'd be 4th which is underperforming for the history of the club and they are still one of the biggest money spenders in the league. the full backs are expensive. mounier is expensive. kourbelis is expensive. relative to the rest of the league. not to be a hater as my club is pao but chatzigiovannis and bouzoukis will look s%$#! for ethniki if they start imo. I bet galanopoulos would too. They've had flashes of brilliance but so far anytime we've inserted youth for ethniki they're often invisible unless it's someone with a clear stand out like Retsos who was starting for OLY and got bought for deca millions.

    I think we need to go with what got us to the top. A premium on Experience + Form so for me I like this Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Fetfa/Lazaros Zeca Mantalos/Pelkas Koutris Sokratis Manolas Torosidis Vlacho Possible additions pending on how they do rest of the season Masouras at RW Kourbelis for CDM Galanopoulos at CM I'm not a fan of the youth unless they show they have extreme composure / form. Donis/Koutris satisfy this for me. If Stafylidis or Holebas were in the picture and in form tho I'd put them at LB over Koutris. I like Tsimikas too for attacking flair, but defensive liability.
  19. forgive me if this a repost but I could not find his thread so I figured it might have got deleted! he's one of the NT's best players gotta be on the board! anyways wanted to note that he got an assist to De Rossi via a thundrous header saved by Buffon and rebound caught by De Rossi in a 3-1 Roma win against Juventus.

    right now I'm I like some of these ideas mitroglou donis fortounis fetfa/lazaros/masouras kourbelis/zeca galano/mantalos koutris/tsim sok manolas torosidis/bakakis vlacho

    Sokratis is still very good and don't think he declined at all. This was his only bad game all season and I've payed attention the whole time. Him and Holding have been a great pair, but Holding is injured right now. It's one game. s%$#! happens.

    like this line up a lot. don't know much about lamprou but I would take fetfa,lazaros, or masouras on the side mitroglou I still like number 1 as a target man. I like kolouris or karelis as impact subs koutris is very sound. and i Like your idea of gala and kourbelis. an 8 and a 6 as you said. very balance squad. I think we need Mitroglou up top because we need some size up there. Reason why I like Masouras/Lazaros is as wingers they can score a lot. fetfa is just pure wild card

    hopefully Masouras is good at Oly. I don't care about age, I care about form and quality. IMO Lazaros is one of our most in form wingers. Would gladly take Holebas right now too if didn't leave. He's one of the best LB in the premier league. The NT is for the best players at the current moment. It's not a youth academy.

    Really? he's looked pretty good the games that I saw. He was pivotal in Olympiakos's round of 32 qualification. Didn't he score like 5 goals in group stage? goal wise he's in the same form as last year. last year with AEK 47 appearances = 16 goals. 34% this year with OLY 17 appearances = 6 goals. 35%

    Mitroglou Donis Fortounis Fetfa Samaris??? Tsimikas Siovas Manolas Sokratis Bakakis Oydessas Impact subs Lazaros for fetfa Torosidis for Bakakis Samaris when in form is our best CM he's the only one from the above lacking in form. I don't feel as comfortable with Zeca or Kourbelis or Gala as the sole CM. Or playing out of position Mantalos or Pelkas there. The wings have reasonable pace with that. Especially our left flank. 3 atb we can absorb the attacks easier plus we have so many good cb's. Retsos and Kpaps as well so if we make this our system it's more robust in case of injury.
